KRUGER BIG ASSIST

Hello Hawks Families!

 

We are asking for your help to apply to a program called the Kruger Big Assist. This program awards $25,000 to 6 minor hockey associations across Canada. These funds can help with the cost of enrollment fee and make hockey more affordable for those who need financial help..

 

As you know, the Hawks love to help wherever possible; we apply for grants whenever we are able and run programs like the gear exchange, but this application needs to be submitted by YOU, our families. As an association, we need to be nominated. So, we would like to ask you to show your appreciation for us by applying on our behalf.

 

This is the link to the website to learn more about the program: https://www.krugerbigassist.ca/en/about .

 

The deadline for application is February 8, 2023!

 

We appreciate you, Hawks Fam!

Hawks Against Racism

As a result of acts of racism against one of its players at a recent hockey tournament on Prince Edward Island, and in support of the player and his family, the Halifax Hawks Minor Hockey Association (“Hawks”) is announcing their decision that none of the association’s hockey teams will participate in PEI minor hockey tournaments until Hockey PEI and Hockey NS take appropriate steps to investigate and address  the recent acts of racism and create a safe and inclusive environment that prevents similar acts in the future.

“Our teams and association will not tolerate racism,” said President Spiro Bokolas. “This is a hard decision, and the Hawks will have close to 700 potentially disappointed players that won’t attend PEI tournaments until we see real change, but we feel this is the right decision to support our player, members, league and the sport of hockey. We also believe this disappointment is only a small fraction of the amount of disappointment felt by our players and families of varying backgrounds and our actions represent a great display of solidarity and reflection to all of our members on the challenges many players still face daily.”

The Hawks are also using this moment to create further awareness with their members of their zero-tolerance approach to any racism or discrimination. With the full support of the family involved, the association is working to ensure this message reaches all players and families.

The Hawks are hopeful that Hockey PEI and Hockey NS can identify next steps and continue to create an environment where all players, from all backgrounds can participate in the game of hockey free of prejudice and discrimination.

Hockey Canada Level 1 Goalie Certification

The Hawks are pleased to announce we will be hosting a Hockey Canada Level 1 Goalie Coach certification for all association coaches interested.  This is free to attend.

This is a great opportunity for coaches to learn about how they can better work with their goalies in practices and games.  The goalie position has become highly specialized and goalies need specific training. 

We are making this mandatory that one coach per competitive team has this level 1 certification,  but the session is open to ALL coaches that are interested (Competitive or Recreation level).

 

Date: Sunday October 24th

Time: 

12pm to 130pm (Maritime Hall Halifax Forum Classroom session)

130pm to 230pm (On ice session at the civic)

 

If interested in attending, please email td@halifaxhawks.ca to be added to the list.
